(KFOR) An unassuming home in a suburban Oklahoma community is where police, and concerned loved ones made a haunting discovery.

50-year-old Lynn Christopher Little is now facing a number of felonies charges after Village police say he neglected his father, William Little, in life, and stole from him after he passed.

"Since at least Thanksgiving of last year, family members from out-of-state have been trying to contact their loved one," explained Deputy Chief Russ Landon with Village Police Department. "They were repeatedly told by the caretaker-son that he was unavailable, he was sick, or he was not home."

"It didn't take officers very long, upon arriving, to know that someone had been deceased for quite some time," said Landon.
